"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and you wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is to be found?" - J. B. Priestly.

Yesterday after work I went bowling with a few of my friends that I've been friends with forever. It was a good time! While we were bowling I just kept hoping it'd snow ... a lot. It's already snowed here but not enough to actually stick. It started snowing while we were at the bowling ally & it kept snowing until this morning!

I was so happy to see all the snow this morning. As soon as Sophia woke up I took her to the front door to see. She kept yelling "Mommy, Look! Snow!" I had to work for a few hrs today so I promised her that we'd play in it when I got home.

Sophia has never really seen a lot of snow. It snowed some her first year but she was a baby and obviously didn't remember/or know. I don't even remember it snowing last year. If it did then it was just a few flurries, nothing that actually stuck to the ground. 

So I am marking today as Sophia's first time in the snow. She didn't really play too much in it. She kind of just stood there. But she looked so cute in her snow outfit. It was her first time wearing gloves so she kept putting her finger in her mouth and trying to take them off that way. 

See the pictures of me on the ground sitting int he snow? As soon as I got one picture with Sophia I took one step and fell. Gary kept snapping away. I wasn't the only one falling though. I think we all did. We ended up watching the guys find random things to go down the hill with and beam each other with snow balls. After about 20 minutes outside we decided to head in. We were all wet from falling and freezing.

Sophia snuggled up under the blankets and she ended up falling asleep for her nap and she's STILL sleeping! I will be waking her up because we've got some of my friends coming over to see her. 

Did it snow where you are? If it did, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! I'm just hoping next time Sophia will actually playing in it.
